Default Re: Akai 4000 Series / 4000DB

Thanks Paul. The recording of Grieg's Piano Concerto (Bavarian State Orchestra/Odd Gruner-Hegge) which I first recorded with the RCA leads and was clipping frequently throughout the digitising, which I did again yesterday using the new DIN output, resulted in a vastly better transfer, though the levels on the tape are essentially too high on the World Record Club original tape (up to a sustained +4dB for several seconds at times). I then decided to try this again today with it set to WR instead of the (expected) Low Noise which I used yesterday. I am thinking though that the off tape clipping is sounding less evident with the WR selection despite believing it to only affect record.

I shall try listening both transfers on my Hi-Fi and compare them!
